Why is UDF Important?
During normal demand conditions water typically moves through the underground pipes at a low velocity. This slow movement allows mineral deposits to accumulate in pipes over time. Mineral buildup can restrict water flow in the pipes, accelerate corrosion rates, and contribute to unfavorable water aesthetics (e.g. taste, odor, & color.) Periodic flushing removes the mineral deposits and is critical to maintaining water quality and the water system. The UDF procedures help ensure that pipe sections are completely cleaned and flushed while avoiding simply moving debris from one part of the system to another.
